Friday Sketchers ~61~


Thought I’d be back bloggin way before now..
but find it heaps harder to get back into swing of things!

I did manage to do the FRIDAY SKETCHERS challenge for this week..
the sketch was provided by the lovely Jacqueline and I absolutely loved it 🙂

Yesterday my new Manga kids from SUGAR NELLIE arrived and I just had to get colouring straight away…

they will be available from FUNKYKITS again soon, check SN blog for updates


I have used two of the four stamps for my card
by masking the girl/child and stamped the boy next to them.

Colouring has been done with Copics and the papers/ribbon is from TLC.

Thanks again for the sketch Jacqueline!


I promised to show some Alton Towers photo’s..

Hopefully will get a slide show done soon.. for now I’ll leave you with these..






Have a great evening everyone,

Hugs, Marlene xx

    Your card is just stunning Marlene. I love these new images, just trying to be good and just admire yours at the moment though !!! I love the scrummy papers you have used and all those gorgeous ribbons.

    Glad you had a good time at Alton Towers. It’s years since I last went. I scared myself silly in Florida on our honeymoon on all the rides and I don’t think I can bring myself to do all that again – you have to be very brave on some of them !
